Sektion 13: Sprachdidaktik

Schwerpunkt der diesj�hrigen Sektionsarbeit sollen - in einem sehr weiten
Verst�ndnis - die empirischen Grundlagen sprachlicher Lehr-Lern-Prozesse
sein. Wir m�chte der Frage nachgehen, was wir dar�ber wissen, wie Menschen
Sprachen - ihre Muttersprache und Fremdsprachen - lernen, und zwar jenseits
des prim�ren Spracherwerbs. Welche empirischen Kenntnisse haben wir? Welche
Desiderata gibt es? Welchen Stellenwert haben empirische Untersuchungen in
didaktischen Kontexten? Welche Art von Empirie und Methodologie ben�tigen
wir? Konzepte wie der autonome Lerner, die auf bestimmten, z.T.
konstruktivistischen Theorien beruhen, k�nnen ebenso thematisiert werden
wie eher instruktionsorientierte Ans�tze.
Wir k�nnen uns Arbeiten vorstellen aus dem Bereich des
Schriftspracherwerbs, der Schreibentwicklung, des
Fremd(fach)sprachenunterrichts, der Kognitionsforschung, der angewandten
kognitiven Linguistik, der Unterrichtsforschung, der Literaturdidaktik, des
Bereichs Deutsch als Fremd-/Zweitsprache, des bilingualen
Sachfachunterrichts oder der Fort- und Weiterbildung. Denkbar ist auch die
gemeinsame Diskussion von empirischen Daten, etwa in Form von Transkripten,
authentischen Texten oder experimentellen Befunden.
